Detective Harry Hole: an angry and off-the-rails detective who wants to play the game by his own rules

A young woman is murdered in her Oslo flat. One finger has been severed from her left hand, and behind her eyelid is secreted a tiny red diamond in the shape of a five-pointed star - a pentagram, The Devil's Star.

Detective Harry Hole is assigned to the case with his long-time adversary Tom Waaler and initially wants no part in it. But Harry is already on notice to quit the force and is left with little alternative but to drag himself out of his alcoholic stupor and get to work.

A wave of similar murders is on the horizon. An emerging pattern suggests that Oslo has a serial killer on its hands, and the five-pointed devil's star is key to solving the riddle.

This is the fifth book in the Harry Hole series.

"The next Stieg Larsson" Independent "Nesbo sets a cracking pace... A series of spectacular plot twists leads to a thrilling finale. Highly recommended" Guardian "Compelling... Shocking and surprising...expertly paced" The Times "Many authors know how to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Jo Nesbo's one of the few who keeps them there" -- Lindwood Barclay "An astonishingly confident debut. The Devil's Star scores with an intriguing plot and Nesbo's mastery of pace and tension" The Times
